SOCIAL STUDIES: (Ms. Ellis A-13) Students have been working hard this week designing a flag that represents them. Students considered things such as their values, traditions, family, favorite food/hobbies, and many more to come up with a design. We have also started our unit on  Asia. After an introduction to the region, we will spend some time individually studying India and China.

Reading: (A-13) Next week we will finish the movie “Hoot”, and move on to our next book selection.

LANGUAGE ARTS: (Mrs. Sullivan A-15) Students did a great job on the ELA PARCC test! Students continue to identify poetic devices in various types of poetry. Students continue to work on their poetry books in class. This book will count as a quiz grade. Students should be reading their science fiction/fantasy book report books. These books should be finished after Memorial Day weekend. Students will create an iMovie in which they interview a character from their book. These movies will be created during class time.

Reading: (A-15) Students Students have started the novel, Among the Hidden. We are focusing on story elements: characters, setting, and plot.

MATH: (Mrs. MacCurtain A-14) Students did a great job on the math PARCC test this week! I am proud of their efforts.  We will be finishing the Stock Market Project in class next week and this will be worth a quiz grade. Now that the PARCC is over, we will go back and review the material that I taught quickly and there will be a few quizzes on these topics. There will be a quiz on Ratios, Unit Rates & Proportions and a quiz or two on Geometry topics.  Students will also be working a Geometry book on their ipads during class and this will also be worth a quiz grade.

Reading (A-14 ) Students will finish the graphic novel they are reading and we will start reading “Freak the Mighty” by Rodman Philbrick. This is a great story of friendship and courage.  They will continue to work on vocabulary and comprehension.

SCIENCE: (Mrs. Richardson D-103)We continue to study “Erosional Forces.”  Students have been identifying the differences between weathering and erosion (glaciers, wind, water, gravity, ice).  Our next topic of study is “Fossils.”  Students will be able to list the conditions necessary for fossils to form, describe and explain the varying processes of fossil formation.  This will lead to geologic time.  Great work on your Earth Day Project!!  I’m looking forward to seeing all of you at Spring Open House.

Reading: (D-103) We will be completing our class discussions and readings for A Long Walk To Water.
